    Join us for the NHTM Spring Dinner Meeting Featuring Guest Speaker Greg Tang.


    Best Practices & Best Ways to Practice!


    Join us as we use visual models to make sense of place value, operations, algorithms, word problems, and fractions. But fluency doesn’t come from great strategies alone. We will also explore best ways to practice, including clever puzzles and games that develop both fluency and reasoning skills. Math – and you – will never be the same!


    When: March 16, 2017 from 4:30 - 7:30pm

    Location: Holiday Inn, Concord NH

    FREE Math Education Webinars

    Looking for ways to collaborate with your colleagues from all over the country, while still staying in the comfort of your classroom or home? NCTM has you covered! March provides a number of opportunities for you to join your peers in the mathematics education community to learn together.

     

    NCTM's wealth of wonderful webinars will discuss equity and social justice, taking action based on results of large-scale national and international assessments, and reasoning and sense making in the math classroom. Join us for these free learning opportunities and be sure to share your insights before, during, and after the events on social media with the hashtag #NCTMLive.

    Collective Action to Develop Awareness: Equity & Social Justice in Math Education

    March 7 | 7:00 p.m. ET

     

    What is one thing the math education organizations can do to further support your work in making mathematics education a more just, humane, and positive experience for children?Join the mathematics education community for the second webinar in this series. Speakers and discussants will include leaders from the Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, the Benjamin Banneker Association, and the North American Study Group on Ethnomathematics.

    Reasoning and Sense Making in the Mathematics Classroom

    March 22 | 7:00 p.m. ET

     

    Developing students' capabilities with reasoning and sense making processes should be the primary goal of mathematics instruction. In order to achieve this goal, all math classes should provide ongoing opportunities for students to productively use these processes. In this webinar, Michael Battitsta will illustrate the nature of mathematical reasoning and sense making in prekindergarten–grade 8 by showing examples from a three-book series on Reasoning and Sense Making in the Mathematics Classroom. With student and classroom vignettes as well as instructional tasks, learn how instruction can support students in their development of reasoning and sense making.

    Tool ratings, reviews, and discussion. 

    Grades 6–8

    Playing Fraction Track — In this two-player e-example, students take timed turns racing to the end of each fraction line by moving one or more of their markers to sum to a given fraction value. Options include a pass and restart button.

    Tool ratings, reviews, and discussion. 

    Grades 9–12

    Vector Investigation - Boat to Island — Students move the boat in the water by changing the magnitude and direction of the boat's speed (blue vector) or the magnitude and direction of the water current (red vector). Students try to land the boat on the island without hitting the walls.
